Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
My work is highly focused on inclusion and today, while driving through the park, I felt bad for laughing at a group of larpers. They have nerf combat gear, too. I tried hard not to be insensitive to them being their true selves but i laughed … hard! And now I feel bad for laughing at them.
How would you rate your firm’s diversity and inclusion efforts? Do you feel there is a strong emphasis on promoting POC?
Were you out at work or with your family first? Would also love to hear if it was your gender or your sexuality (or both) too.
Everyone: We asked for diversity and visible minorities in this video. This edit shows 90% whites dudes... The producer: The guy in the first shot is latino and there’s also an Irishman and an Australian bro at the end 😑

Yay! It’s “diversity” y’all! 🙄
Curious what everyone’s caseloads look like in their district if you are a resource room teacher. Do you have 504’s and IEP’s on your caseload?
Can anyone speak on the diversity at Alverez & Marsal? Thinking about joining but it seems very homogeneous which I guess isn't too different from other consulting firms.
Diversity in advertising is great, however I think it should also include diversity in opinion/political views. Anyone agree/disagree?
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!

Does anyone feel like the 'token' diversity person in a room/meeting and how do you deal with it?
It blew my mind to learn about compulsory heterosexuality and gender performativity. It’s weird because even years later of being aware of these concepts, I find myself having to unlearn things that were buried deep inside me without even realizing. It’s hard but it’s worth it.
What’s your gender, age, & city? After dropping your info, respond to others in your area
Do you show your human side at work? Also share your gender if you’re comfortable. I’m F and I generally do, but wondering if this is not perceived well. For example, sometimes I talk to my peers about my weekend plans, sometimes about how tired I am because of work, I recently had surgery and shared with them details about it.
Do other firms have an Asian Diversity or affinity group? If so, what are some of the things the networks have done which have been helpful?

When is the right time to tell people you’re going on paternity leave? Is 3 months in advance sufficient notice?
Transitioned into consulting post-MBA (1.5 years ago) and generally enjoyed the experience. Since I joined my comp has gone up ~13% and I’ve liked my project teams but in my most recent review talk my partner told me he thought I was ready to be promoted and had advocated for me but there was an HR rule against it and I was on-track to be promoted in 6 months. Since then I’ve learned that one of my classmates (started 2-3 months before me due to COVID) was promoted last cycle.
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
I need recommendations for nice maternity work pants. My office is WFH but I occasionally need to go in. I’m 16 weeks (first pregnancy) and today realized in a panic when I attempted to get dressed that my work pants are either too tight in the waist to wear or getting there. I’m tall (5’10”) and usually wear Theory, Rag and Bone or J. Crew work pants. Any suggestions for nice black maternity pants that I could pair with a blouse or blazer? Thx!!
I'm so upset my flight was on time and I got to my client site in the south. Could have been an epic WFH snow day in NYC 😔❄💔

I need help immediately! So I just got an offer from Gartner, but I am also interviewing with Google, Microsoft, and Tik Tok. I am prepping for a final loop at Microsoft but told Gartner I have an offer to make negotiations more in my favor. Is it bad to accept an offer from Gartner then finish the interviews at another company higher on my list and accept the other offers(Google/Microsoft) instead? & Can I push for my compensation without presenting the other offers?

Is the H1B approval rate down this year? Have any big companies stopped petitioning? Did Trump’s executive order make the process more expensive for employers ?
I work at a boutique (currently ~14 bankers and 10 back office roles). Joined in august. Since august, 3 senior bankers (MD / VP) 1 HR director, and now 2 analysts have left for great opportunities. To be honest I’m happy and like my role, plus it’s too early to think about switching firms already. I am now the only analyst left, we have another one joining in January. Any advice on how I can leverage this for comp discussions at the end of the year?
